Baby strawberries are small and green until they begin to ripen which is usually about 30 days after they bloom. These strawberries are special. They grow and get ripe in July and August which is just perfect for our gardens since we are only open during those times. The type of strawberry is called "day-neutral" and they don't ripen during June like all the berries most of us are used to picking. We contain these berries by planting them inside tires in April. Then we just keep them watered, weeded, and fed to get luscious berries for you to pick.
